Of course all the decimals have fractions except those with non-recurring and non-terminating decimals.

Not all decimals can be expressed as fractions. Only terminating and recurring decimals can be expressed as fractions. eg a recurring decimal: 0.3333333... = 1/3 A terminating decimal: 0.125 = 1/8 A decimal that does not recurr or terminate, cannot be expressed as a fraction. eg Pi = 3.141592654... Pi can not be expressed as a fraction as it does not recurr or terminate. It can only be approximated to a fraction. eg Pi ≈ 355/113 but is correct to 6 decimal places.

decimals fractions and percents are all alike because they show parts of 100, per 100(percent, cent representing for 100, century)

terminating decimals and non-terminating repeating decimals are considered rational numbers.pi is an example of an irrational number. this is the ratio of the circumference of a circle over the diameterthe value of pi is 3.1416....it is non terminating and non-repeating, therefore it is considered as an irrational nimbermakalagot jud kaayo kay dugay makuha ang answer. hahay. tawn pud. way klaro ani nga website oy. way gamit >:)

It's because decimals are really fractions and all numbers get smaller when you multiply them by fractions.

No, no repeating decimal is irrational. All repeating decimals can be converted to fractions. They are, however, non-terminating.

All irrational numbers are non-terminating decimals that can't be expressed as fractions

0.5 is a terminating decimal and, since it is equal to a half, it is not an integer. A terminating decimal that is not an integer is a rational fraction. However, not all rational fractions are terminating decimals (eg 1/3 = 0.333...).0.1251.2512.5etc.

All terminating decimal numbers are rational.

Yes.Yes.Yes.Yes.

Fractions are related to repeating decimals in the sense that a fraction can be represented as a repeating decimal if the denominator has prime factors other than 2 or 5. For example, 1/3 can be represented as 0.3333..., with the 3s repeating infinitely. Terminating decimals, on the other hand, are fractions that have denominators which are powers of 10. For example, 1/4 can be represented as 0.25, which terminates after two decimal places.

Commonly called terminating decimals. However, no decimals actually come to an end as you can add zeros until infinity without changing the value of the decimal. therefore they are known as recurring decimals in a similar way to 1/3 e.g. 0.13 = 0.1300000000000000000000000000... 13/100 and 2/3 = 0.66666666666666666666... These can all be written as fractions.

All rational fractions.

No, not all fractions can be written as a non-terminating decimal. For instance, 1/3 has infinitely many 3's in the decimal places.

All jobs will use terminating decimals but most jobs will also require you to be able to work with recurring decimals and many will need decimal numbers which are neither terminating nor recurring.

All numbers can be changed from fractions to decimals.
